Publishers Text

Satisfy the sweet cravings of your family and friends over and over again with more than 300 luscious desserts for every occasion, from family meals and celebrations to elegant dinner parties and buffet spreads.

Dessert does not have to be just "American as Apple Pie" any longer. This special collection of recipes, from an international team of food writers, is a mixture of time- tested classics, as well as modern desserts that appeal to the taste buds, budgets, and busy schedules of today's cooks. Scattered throughout are 30 recipes that cater to specific health and diet needs such as diabetic, gluten-intolerant, low carb, and low- calorie. You'll also find more than 150 full-color photographs that highlight many of the mouthwatering recipes.

The book is divided into 19 chapters, including Cookies; Cupcakes; Simple Cakes and Tortes; Layer Cakes, Rolls, and Gateaux; Pies and Tarts; Pastries and Yeast Cakes; Crisps, Cobblers, and Strudels; Meringues, Pavolas, Dacquiose, Vacherin, and Macaroons ; Baked Custards; Mousses, Gelatin Creams, and Charlottes; Puddings and Sweet Soufflés; Sweet Pancakes, Crepes, and Blintzes; Ice Creams and Sorbets, Fritters; Candy; and much more.

All recipes include preparation and cooking times, step-by-step instructions, and approximate number of servings. A short appendix shows many basic cooking utensils, as well as useful charts with conversion tables for weights and measures, equivalent ingredients, halving or doubling recipes, plus expert baking hints and tips.
